Sir Rod Stewart is made a Knights Batchelor by the Duke of Cambridge during an Investiture ceremony at Buckingham Palace in London on Oct. 11, 2016.

Rod Stewart joined the likes of Paul McCartney, Elton John, Mick Jagger and Tom Jones on Tuesday (Oct. 11) when he was knighted at Buckingham Palace. The 71-year-old rock icon was recognized for his contributions to music and charity by Prince William, who bestowed the honor on the "Maggie May" singer (and his wife, Lady Penny Lancaster), who paid homage to his Scottish heritage by wearing tartan-patterned pants and a jacket with military-style red and gold trim.

Stewart will call himself Sir Roderick David Stewart.
